Cheltenham will undoubtedly be the main focus on the racing calendar from Tuesday, but first up there are four meetings to enjoy across England on Monday.
Plumpton is the first destination of the day, where six races are set to play out between 13:00 and 15:55.
Kansas City Chief (13/8) has earned successive second-placed finishes since winning at Cheltenham in December and has the ability to dictate the 14:10 contest at the East Sussex track.
Stratford’s six-race meetings gets under way at 13:45 and runs through to 16:40, while Betfred is paying out an Extra Place in the opener and 15:30.
Osprey Call is the 5/2 favourite for the 15:30 over 2m 70yds at the Warwickshire venue, but Castel Gandolfo (3/1) could be a contender as he attempts to bounce back from a disappointing seventh last time out.
